My research interests include coastal resource management and policy, natural hazards research, and applied statistics/econometrics. Current research includes the measurement of coastal homeowners’ valuation of natural features for mitigating risks from natural hazards, measuring individual’s assignment of responsibility and willingness-to-pay for rebuilding New Orleans post-Katrina, and methods for addressing bias from onsite sampling in recreation demand models.
I teach the following courses: Introduction to Environmental Studies, Introduction to Coastal Management, Coastal Hazards: Science and Management, and Statistics for the Sciences. I have also taught Introduction to Microeconomics.
